Ken, that is a great find. A tribute to more of Robeson's inventiveness.

Ken - I like that Robeson Sharp Stik. I keep seeing stuff here that I never knew existed.

Joe and Mel, thanks for the comments. It is an interesting and ingenious item, especially the way the set up is designed to start off your sharpening stroke at the correct angle. It's the only one I've ever seen.

My wife & I went to a couple estate sales this weekend.
This is my haul of sharpening related implements:
A Henckels 15" sharpening steel, Smiths Arkansas stone, unused in the box and a Rich Maid V shaped sharpening steel.

Here is a better shot of the Rich Maid-

The Rich Maid will go into my collection of weird sharpening devices and the Henckels will be used or given to one of the granddaughters who seem to think it is grandpa's responsibility to supply their households with anything that has to do with cutting or sharpening. :lol:

The Smith's stone, I will probably keep it, maybe even use it. :mrgreen:

I keep picking these stones up at estate sales......I have a drawer full and have no idea what they are....

This one looks like granite or marble....It's very smooth and not porous.

Any idea what it is?

It doesn't look like Novaculite found in sharpening stones but there is a lot about stones I'm not aware of, I'm quite sure.
Just have my own experience.
If it is Novaculite it will remove metal on a blade edge.

Picked this up the other day and found it in my 1938 Remington Dupont catalog.

Congratulations espn77!
That's a neat find! We've got a couple of those type sharpeners in the kitchen knife drawer, I think they came from my mothers kitchen. They do an okay job on a kitchen knife, they'll actually pull some metal off an old carbon butcher knife that has been neglected. The ones in our possession have metal bases with holes where it could be mounted to a counter top, I think ::shrug:: , probably not as old as your Remington.
That Remington tag and the green really make that a prize!

Keith, nice score on the Remington sharpener. It's a great piece of history to go along with your knives and storage cases.

Here is an old stone I have. It is about 2 1/4" in diameter and has a leather pouch. The lid on the pouch is embossed with the Boy Scouts logo. The inside of the pouch is embossed with "The Carborundum Company - Niagra Falls, N. Y." The back of the pouch has two slits which would allow you to wear it on a belt.

Welcome to the forum, Jtx! I like those old round ax or hatchet sharpening stones. That Boy Scouts pouch is pretty cool too!
